To our publishers and customers

[April 30, 2019] After almost 11 successful years in business, Patternfish will cease selling patterns on 31 May, 2019.

We will continue to make our customers' stashes accessible to them to the end of 30 June, 2019, in order to provide them with time to save their purchased patterns to their personal hard drives.

Thank you all so very much for your enthusiastic support over the years.  It has meant an enormous amount to us.

09-011 Oblique (Cowl/Wimple)

"A lacy cowl is perfect for changeable weather-- you can cover your head if it drizzles, your ears if they are cold, or just pile it around your neck to keep off the chill," counsels Temple. "And no matter which way you wear it, you still look great! Oblique is easy to knit in this 'soft enough to wear next to your skin' sock yarn. Wider at the neck edge than the top to give you some fabric to tuck into your jacket, the shaping is achieved by changing needle sizes rather than changing the stitch pattern. Simple and stylish!"
